Abstract

Ulama from the Besuki Residency (Situbondo, Bondowoso, Banyuwangi, and Jember) in the past, had local wisdom in carrying out harmony, happiness and social resilience through philanthropy in the form of alms salvation. Among them is alms salvation called “Sedekah Selamatan Sîr” which is done by people who feel successful in their work or so that they grow in their careers. The purpose of this study is to understand the meaning of “Sedekah Selamatan Sîr” and its implementation of career development. This research uses ethnographic methods. The results of this study indicate that “Sedekah Selamatan Sîr” means as a reminder that careers must contain worship values, expect blessings for families, and give alms to maintain harmony with neighbors. Career choice and development is the process of developing self-concept; quality and self-competence and pay attention to the environmental context. People are considered successful in their careers if they do not just feel prosperous and happy collectively with their family, friends
